Such a boring drama. Starting is good that snake after 1000 years of cultivation got the human form and having rat ,(who also get the human form ) as a friend .Then she went to city where she met the lead actor who play the role of physician and then their love story start .. but there is no spark in their love story ,so loose acting ,not emotionally connected with theirs love story ..Male lead character role is so loose ,his character except doing the work of physician did nothing in whole drama except sacrifice his life for the sake of white snake ..I still not understand how he came to know about that she is demon. Second lead cHaracter love story Is good ,it shows how much they connected to each other but still here also didn't get it that when she giving him water to drink to forget everything which happened with him in his past include her then how he came to know that she is snake and she make him drink something that make him forget her and then this character disappear in whole drama ,I thought they meet at last but nothing happen .....And ending part when they (first lead character) meet after so many hardship, they just smile to see each other and then drama over ,what is this no type of emotion they showed after meeting such a long time that should have tear of happiness in theirs eyes ,then they should hug each other and end with the reunite with the family ...So boring ...

Review: The Legend of White Snake (2019)

Wow! Just started this but want to say that the pictures have such perfect colour so attractive and pleasing to the eye.
Some incredible scenery and backdrops. Impeccable filming and photography. As time passes the technology improves and so does the quality of the cinematology. You just want pause and just look at the unimaginable beauty of the surroundings. These pictures are better than Disney. I just love the images.

So this mortal(human) and demon are in love. He has the love poison but she will give up immortality to save his life to live with him for decades. She will give him her thousand years of cultivation to be with him and suffer every hundred days. Wow! Powerful love. I will give up immortality to have these moments with you vows the White Snake. She has given him her life bead.

Throughout this drama this white snake sacrifices everything for that man(human) she loves so deeply. She brings him back from death. She risks everything for him so many times.

When the green snake meets the white snake for the first time she(the green snake) just totally falls in love with her. She pretending to be a boy and never wants to leave her but changes back to a woman when the white snake says she cannot follow her if she’s a man because its immoral for an unmarried man and woman to be together. From that moment forth they were more than sisters and were always inseparable.

I was thinking is this the monk that falls in love with the green snake? I think he likes her a lot.

The green snake meets the hunter and they hit it off so much first as drinking companions but he likes to collect snake products to sell as medicines. She can’t stand that. Gradually she falls in love with this man but their story becomes a tragedy.

The white snake was in her ideal world but:

2 Nephi 2:11
Book of Mormon
11 For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, my firstborn in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.

I love these two women(white and green snake) warriors” Mo the whenua, mo nga wahine ko whawhai tonu tatou. For land and women we fight.”
E tino tapu te whenua mena e kore te whenua ko kore te tangata The ground is sacred if there is no ground there would be no people.

I find this awesomely fascinating and compelling watching. Why? Is it the magic? Is it the two snakes? Is it the mysterious story of fantasy? Is it the unusual phenomena? Is it the philosophy and quotable quotes? I can’t tell you. I just keep my eyes glued to the screen so much so that I haven’t written copious notes about the story people or actions like I usually do.

The ending though I wasn’t that happy with it. She just had a baby a chosen reincarnation(the wisdom star) that chose her to be his mother but she give imprisoned in the Leifeng Pagoda until the pagoda collapses or the West Lake dries up. So she must have been there over 25 years before her son whom she hadn’t seen since he was born petitioned the Emperor to inquire of Heaven for his mothers release.
